New to Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations? Follow these 4 easy steps below to start charging your EV…
Step 1: When you pull up to the EVCS check to make sure it is not in use by another vehicle.
Step 2: There are 3 ways to access the EVCS: ChargePass Card, RFID enabled credit card, or call 1.888.758.4389. Since the charging stations are free of charge, your credit card will not be charged by accessing or charging your vehicle.
Step 3: Once the station has been activated through step 2, a light will illuminate around the plug/holster, press the button on the top of the handle and remove the SAE J1772 connector and plug it into your vehicle.
Step 4: When you are finished charging, tap your ChargePass Card or RFID credit card on the station’s reader symbol and the station will display a message indicating that the charging session has ended.
